Beaches & Water Activities

From the mansions dotting Gloucester’s Eastern Point to the silhouette of Boston directly across the horizon, few beaches can match the raw beauty of the views one gets while at Niles Beach. Photographers and artists will love the wide amount of visual material with which to work with. However, Niles Beach offers much more than just its scenic elements, possessing soft sand and calm waters loved by swimmers, sunbathers, snorkelers, and scuba divers alike.

Due to its smaller size, the beach never gets nearly as densely packed as some of the more popular North Shore beaches do, making Niles Beach welcome sight for those who enjoy their space and privacy. Parking is limited in summer to residents only, but there is no fee for walk-ons.
